In order to study the evolution characteristics of lithofacies and sedimentary facies under the sequence framework, according to the field drilling core logging, the complete sequence framework of Dameigou Formation in Yuqia area was identified, the lithofacies paleogeography was restored, and the sequence stratigraphic evolution model and the coal accumulation law of Dameigou Formation were obtained.
